I have been drawn to pink the last several months.
When I was younger, I hated pink. I don't know why, but only liked blue.
My poor mother, she always wanted to dress me in little pink dresses, but alas, I disliked pink.
It wasn't until I had little girls that developed an eye for pink. And lately, I seem to be totally drawn to it. Terribly hard to make a boy quilt with pink!
Anyway, I have also been drawn to dying with natural dyes. I have never done it. It sounds intriguing.
I read an article about using native plants to dye with. Did you know that Queen Ann's lace, the plant that grows wild all over in parts of the US, is good for dyes? yeah, neither did I!
But then recently, I saw a thing on FB, yup, Facebook, that used avocado skins for dye. Now that caught my eye as I have been eating an avocado a day in efforts to reduce cholesterol.(mine is too high)
But, when I went to the internet (Google) to find out particulars...they said it was the pit.
So, I am confused and wondering really which it is...(maybe use both??)
In either case, I think it sounds wonderful....
